Miles from a tank?
Whats the most you have got from a tank of fuel in your 159? I feel pretty chuffed, the fuel consumption on my 159 has been so much better since I had a new ECU in the summer, but I never expected to get the improved consumption on a good run that I got over new year. Driving on open two lane roads in France, I stayed at a steady 60 - 65, occasional 70mph, I was just enjoying the drive. But the car was loaded, two up, plus luggage and a generous load of wine (had to be done) I managed to get 665 miles out of one tank of diesel (Total regular + Millers), that worked out at 48 mpg.
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
